Eejublican Party Falling to Pieces,
. The Republican party had no leads
ers. It looked up to great and earnest
men, but it had no half-dozen leaders.
Wade, Chase, and Giddhigs, Stevens
and Cameron, Seward and Greeley,
Lincoln, Sumner, Stanton, Andrew,
Wilson, Hale and Fessenden, Palfrey
and Adams, were equals; no one, or
three of them, claimed precedence.
The cement of the party was a princi
ple, not any idolatry, like that w hich
made the Whig cling to and echo
Wei ster and Clay. The men who cre
ated the Rupublican party were men
of convictions. They sought, more or
less directly, but in dead earnest, to
limit and kill slavery. The men whom
the Republican party has created are
not men of convictions. They seek
only to use for party or personal ends
the power they have inherited.
Lacking its old cement a great
purpose the party is falling to pieces,
like bowlders from a wall without
mortar. Its managers have been so
dull and timid in using .their great
victory, they have so wasted their op
portunities, that they have puttered
the Southern question their whole
capital to fall prematurely into abey
ance. On their own theory they stand
to-day with no raisnii. d't trr, no ex
cuse for theirexisten'-e. Theirstrength
lay in a public opinion well informed
as to Southern purpose and the na
ture of Southern civilization, and
watchful of the possible reaction from
its sore defeat. The events of the ten
years licfore the war were what taught
and trained that opinion. Jtut a gen
eration has come upon the stage since.
The active young men, the van of
party movement, were then in their
cradles. They knew nothing of those
events as they took place, and the his
tory ot them is not yet written. We
have heard more than one man, twenty-live
years old, ask, with natural
iirnorance, "Was there ever a mob in

The following are extracts from an

Ihe South rules to-day in Congress
rightfully. In the long run brains
rule, but in critical moments courage
rules. Though North is the abler sec

Whatever be the result of Mr. Pot
ter's investigation, his victory shows
that the prudent men of the south
are driven headlong, incapable of the
least resistance" to dangerous courses
by the worst elements of the North
ern Democracy and by their own mad
followers at home. The pretty speeches
of Lauiar and Gordon, even if not
alisoluto hypowrisy, are only drois of
rosewater hung on the mad surface of
Southern hate. What was Stephens'
protest, or .Lamar's opinion on tne sil

Potter's success shows that when once

to her reactionary mood, or drive the
North olf by provoking her to secede,
If the southern leaders can mannge
their followers they will never again
leave the L'nion. To rule inside of it
with such rigor, or wrench it to such
injustice as will place the North under
their feet, or drive it out this is the
lesson learned by Appomattox
The South will never again voluntari
ly take up arms against the Lmon.
Rut Mr. Potter's success reveals that,
nevertheless, such madness is within
the jwssible future. This constitutes
the real value of the transaction, the
revelation it makes of the condition of
the solid South: it continued vassal
age to the reckless and dangerous class
w hich, in JWil, dragged a unnu ami
reluctant aristocrats, and their foot
stool, the Northern Democrat, into
rebellion. At any moment another
gun tired at Sumter muy plunge the
nation into war.

keen interest in any question except
finance, the South has the choice of
the next President. Conciliating the

that disprove them. Ia-1 us ask, then,
who to-day are the fanatics judging by
this rule. ljok at the facts, the world
over. Whenever during the last cen
tury, either of our great nations has
seen its existence threatened by civil
war or foreign assault, instantly that
nation has run to the shelter of paper
currency, and generally lieen thus en
abled to survive the storm. This is
fact, not a dream. Does it prove that
jiaper money is necessarily ruin and
shipwreck? Does it not rather look
as if a paper currency had some quali
ty in it that called forth to the last
dollar the resources of the people, and
so stimulated their energies that they
could avail themselves of all their pos
sible and hidden iower ? When a man
strips to light for his life, he puts him
self in the condition aurl posture to do
his In st. When the nation girds her
self for a last' desperate struggle for
existence, what does history tell us she
has unformly done? History tells us
that a nation in such extremity has
uniformly thrown oil" every encum
brance, stopped every drain on her re
sources, stimulated every possible
power of production, economized all
her means, and guarded herself as
carefully as possible from all foreign
interference with her business prosper
ity. How lias she secured and effected
all this? History answers, "Ry re

Gen. Sutler's ITe-y Departure.
Xew Vork Herald.
In his Newbury i Krt speech, on the
1th of July, General Rutler declared
war against the national banks, and
laid down his own platform in these
words; "My proiiositioii is that we
should issue four hundred millions in
non-interest bearing bonds of the I'ni-
ted States to settle the unemployed
laboring alien of the I 'nited States up
on the public lands of the I nited
States." He added: "No more notes
of the I'nited States can be issued than
the people choose to take, and if they
near no interest those winch are is
sued involve the country in no debt."
Jlereis at any rate a distinct plat-
lorm, niantiiiiy stated, and while we
do not agree with General Rutler, and
are surprised to fiud linn following m
track ot Mr. Hetidnck P.. Wright, of
Pennsylvania, who made a similar
proposition last year, we are not dis-
imksihI to sneer at him, as some of our
"esteemed con ten libraries" are doing.
He is as wrong as wrong can be; but
he will have to be met with argu
ments and not with sneers. We are
glad to see that he told the laboring
people whom he addressed that vio
lence is wrong and a blunder.. "The
evils of the day," lie said, "caiinot be
reached by sporadic riots and viok-nce.
The men who made the riots last sum
mer effected no alleviation of the puli
lie misery. Our remedy is theballot."
That is sound and American doctrine;
and so long as we all agree to submit
our dillering views to the decision of
the ballot it does not much-matter
what views are urged. Gen. Butler
thinks a distribution of four hundred
millions of dollars in pauer money
among the unemployed tailoring men
of the country, to put them on public
lands, would cure all our woes. Me
has a right to put forw ard his views
and to get. as many people as he
can to vote for them.

one garment only, and threw her
clothing through the open door into
the parlor. Then a noise was heard
as of some one opening tlie garden
gate, and the two fled, leaving Louise
uninjured, but still senseless on the
floor. Her feet were against the door,
and the caller, who was Mr. Charles
H. Conner, found some difficulty in
getting the door open. When he did
open it, and realized what had hap
pened, a shout weut up which sum
moned many villagers to the spot.
Without waiting for aid, Mr. Conner
wrapped a table-cover over the inani

laid heron the bed.
Mrs. Conner, Mrs. Townsend, and
other neighbors did every thing in
their power for Louise's comfort, and
by the aid of restoratives and prompt
medical assistance she revived. An
ordinary physician's sponge cut in two,
so as to completely cover her nose and
mouth, was found tied over her face
with two strips torn from a towel
which hung in her bedroom.
The Latest .Legislation of Congress
arious inquiries nave arisen in re
gard to the pensions by the (Jeneral
Government in consequence of rather
indefinite statements which have lieen
made relative to some legislation of
Congress on the subject at about the
close of the late " session. In looking
into the matter it is ascertained that
an act which passed March 9, bS5H au
thorizes pensions to all soldiers of the
war of 1K12 who served fourteen days
and upwards, and to their widows,
provided tlie latter have not married
again. A still later act was passed,
however, in regard to pensions grow
ing out of the casualties of the late
war. Under it section 4709 of the Re
vised Statutes of the I'nited States
now provides that "all pensions which
have lieen or may hereafter be granted
in consequence of death "occurring
from a cause which originated in the
service since the 4th day of March,
lsci, or inconsequence of wounds or
injuries received or disease contracted
since that date, shall commence from
the death or discharge of the person
on whose account the claim lias been
or is hereafter granted, or from the
termination of the right of the party
having prior title to such pension; pro
vided, that the application for such
pension has lieen or is hereafter filed
with the Commissioner of Pensions
w ithin five years after the right there
to has occurred; otherwise the pen
sion shall commence from the date of
filing the last evidence .necessary to
establish the same, liut the limitation
prescrilied shall not apply to claims by
or in behalf of insane persons and
children under sixteen years of age."
This act was passed during the last
session of Congress.
A Sound declaration.
One of the licst documents we have
seen for a long time, settingforth polit
ical doctrines, is the plattorm adopted
the other day by the J)emoeratic State
Convention of Ohio. The platform was
received by the convenaion with en
thusiastic cheers, and was indorsed
alike by the iieculiar followers of
Thurman and Pendleton, who have
heretofore maintained a difference of
opinion resiecting the nnancial ques
tion. Upon that question the plat
form contains the following declara
"We demand as further acts of
Justice, as well as measures of relief,
the alisolute rep'.al of the resumption
act and the liberation of the coin
hoarded in the Treasury; the removal
of all restrictions to the coinage and
re-establishment of silver as money,
metal the same as gold the same as
it w as liefore its fraudulent demoneti
zation; the gradual sutistitutionof Uni
ted States legal-tender paper for nation
al iKink notes, and its permanent es
tablishment as the sole paper monev
of the country, made receivable for all
dues to the Government, and of equal
tender with com, the amount of such
issues to Ik o regulated by legislation
or organic law as to give the people
in assurance of the stability in vol
ume of currency and consequent sta
bility of value; no further increase m
the ixmded debt and no further sale of
bonds for the purchase of coin for re
sumption purposes, but the gradual
extinction of the public dettt, rigid
economy and the reduction of expen
ditures in all branches of the public
service, and a tariff for revenue du
ty." 1 he foregoing declaration ot princi
ples should be accepted as the basis of
Democratic organization throughout
the Union. It expresses the senti
ment of three-fourths of the business
men of the country and of nine-tenths
ot the laboring classes. It is clear and
unequivocal, and may be hailed as the
ground upon which the Presidential
contest of 1-8-.I will be fought. The
Ohio platform suits the Kentucky
Democracy exactly, and, w ere a Dem
ocratic Convention to lie held now in
tlie State, it would be ratified with
scarcely a dissenting voice. Louis

A strong Government! that means

tended that the American holders of
the debt of Virginia, and other South
ern States as well, are not willing to
compromise their claims on as easy
terms to the States as are the foreign
holders. The Barings, w ho own 'hea
vily of Southern securities, are espe
cially mentioned as anxious to come
to an adjustment, and other large for
eign houses are with the Barings, in
this. How the conflicting interests
are to be harmonized is the question
the future must have. Perhaps the
visit of Messrs. Lee and Johnston to
Euroiieas.the represenlativesof Virgin
ia may cipeii the way for a settlement of
this really important matter.
With the debt question in its pres
ent position the South cannot prosper
as it otherwise would. Scarcely a wet k
ago a prominent Southern gentleman
called on a leading banker in Wash
ington for aid to one of the Southern
States, and he was informed that on
his own individual name the firm
would be happy to accommodate him
with such funds as he might desire,
but not a dollar would they advance
to the State. And this is precisely the
feeling in 2tew York.
